My name is Waseed, my age is between 10 to 15 years, I don’t know exactly how much. I sit here everyday, in Anarkali Food Street in Lahore. Every time a person scale his weight on my scale, I get 2  rupees. I came from Peshawar, I left home two years ago with my elder brother. I don’t go to school. Living on the street is dangerous, some boys get attacked and robbed. But I am lucky, I have my brother to protect me. Everything is good here, except long time I don’t see my mother. I miss her very much.

Lahore, Pakistan, 2006
